Welcome to the website of Joseph O’Neill Music
providing piano lessons in York to children and adults, beginners to advanced.
My approach draws from a range of prodigious schools of piano playing in a way that is engaging and accessible to the modern learner of any age. Students are encouraged to listen closely to themselves whilst they play, paying careful attention to both the technical and artistic aspects of practice and performance. Strong independent fingers, elastic hands and supple wrists enable my students to express themselves with artistic, sensitive and stylistic interpretation.
Students and parents also have access to their own online portal, containing their timetable, lesson notes, a practice log and many other online resources.
Ranging from beginners to post-graduate level, my current and former students include competition and academic award winners, and around 60% achieve a merit or distinction in their piano and music theory exams. Adult beginners and returners are particularly welcome, as are more advanced players.
Lessons are available face-to-face at my home studio, or online via a video-call format.
I have a BA (Hons) in Music Composition and Professional Practice, an ABRSM Diploma in Piano Teaching, and Grade 8 Music Theory. I am also a Full Professional Member of EPTA UK and an ISM Registered Private Teacher.
Alongside a busy teaching practice, I am also available for booking as an accompanist, and for recitals, concerts and other events.
Feel free to explore my website for other information.
